A Poem

I am unemotionally void
and underwhelmed with
the state of my very being

My indifference is irreverent
and my feelings irrelevant
as I stare into space stoicly

Words are noise while
noise becomes anti-silence
as I sleep through it all

Inside I feel nothing
a gaping hole, a scar,
a broken piece…

A Poem

I feel like crumbs on a plate
left over from a hurried meal
and long forgotten

Remnants of time lost
inside a memory shredder
just leaving strands of paper
with our words, torn

This is what I am
a castoff, an errant particle
wishing he was whole again

But crumbs…

A Poem

I want to be the soft underbelly
so I can stop trying to keep up
with the outward appearance
of always being objectively fine

I just want to curl into the flesh
and be held, body to body,
to return to what it was like
to be held in the soft underbelly…
